Created To Need A Help Meet: A Marriage Guide for Men
A man still has his dignity, you know. It worked for me. Then when you get old, you can be humble too. I will set you on the road to recovery with one good suggestion.
Created To Need A Help Meet – Anticipation (Michael Talks About Sex) | Suzanne Calulu
Ask your wife for advice and counsel. Welcome her judgments even if you feel she is attacking you. Pretend to be humble and thoughtful.

Be patient and ask her to expound further on her concerns. Pause and look enlightened. Nod in appreciation for her wisdom and then modify your actions in some measure based on her suggestion. If unfolding events prove her wrong, be kind and gentle, not gloating or mentioning what is obvious. On the other hand, if her counsel and judgment prove to be right, praise her for it and thank her for saving you from error.
You will make a new woman out of her. She will get ten years younger and smile like a kid opening birthday presents. But I warn you, she will get addicted to being happy.

She will want to have sex more often and will initiate contact. When I write an article or book I submit it to my wife for editing. If she thinks something is not appropriate or could be said a different way, or that a point needs a little different slant, I discuss it with her until I see her point of view. There are times that she catches a skewed perspective or bad attitude coming through my writings.
I have come to trust her goodwill toward me and to accept the fact that she likes me even when I am bad—sort of like a mother.
She does like to see me honest and open to her wisdom. I would be stupid not to take advantage of her sanctified perspective. One day, maybe soon, I am going to appear before the Judgment Seat of Christ to be rewarded or to lose reward according to the things done in this body, whether it be good or bad 2 Corinthians 5: At that day I am sure I will wish I could go back and have a do-over on many things.
Right now, before I stand before Christ embarrassed, my wife is enabling me to have that do-over, to correct ignorance or insensitivity to the Holy Spirit.
She is sanctified in some areas that I am not and can see things I cannot see. She is not just editing my writings; she is editing my life so that the end product is better than me. I was created to need her counsel and judgment. In my defense, it works both ways. I edit her writings and her life as well. Like any woman, she can get her feathers up and claw the blood out of a timid soul that still needs a little understanding.
She has an occasional blind spot. Because I trust her judgments and censorship, she trusts mine, and we are heirs together of the grace of life, sanctifying one another so as to reduce our embarrassment at the Judgment Seat of Christ.
I need her to support my vision Every man has a vision, and visions are tenuous by nature. I am familiar with some of the controversy surrounding the Pearls and what they teach regarding disciplining children. To keep this review focused, I will not discuss their child-raising techniques.
She and I agree that the Lord has created women to be distinct from men not only in body, but also in role. In his wisdom, the Lord has given to men the position of leadership in the home and he has given women the complementary, helping role.
Jesus willingly became a helper to the Father. The Holy Spirit became a helper to the Son.

As I reverence my husband, I am creating a picture of how we, the Church, should reverence Christ. Alas, these nuggets of gold are surrounded by too much waste, too much folly masquerading as biblical wisdom. This is one of the harshest, angriest books I have read on this side of Richard Dawkins and this critical spirit is displayed in insulting language, in lack of sympathy, and in the passing of harsh judgments.
Here is an example from early in the book: First she mocks her ugly appearance, and then her ugly demeanor.
When a woman writes to ask Pearl how to deal with a husband who idolizes television and allows their young children to view inappropriate shows, Pearl responds by telling her to imagine the day her husband leaves her. The young children will cry when you leave for work, and the older children will be glad to see you go so they can exercise their new found liberties.
If you continue to dishonor your husband, the above scenario will likely become our own personal nightmare—soon! It got worse when he wanted you to do something exotic sexually. Divorce is never planned, but is almost always preceded by certain avoidable reactive behavior and events.
